A Leader Ascends in Your New Look at PRINCESS LEIA #1
Lucasfilm Ltd. and Marvel Entertainment shared with Comic Frontline a new look at the highly anticipated PRINCESS LEIA #1 – the blockbuster new limited series set in the Star Wars™ universe! Eisner-Award Winning writer Mark Waid (Daredevil, S.H.I.E.L.D.) and blockbuster artist Terry Dodson (Avengers & X-Men: AXIS, Uncanny X-Men) bring you a brand new story of Leia’s quest to help her people…and her struggle to find her place in the galaxy.
When Princess Leia Organa was captured by the Empire as a Rebel spy, she never betrayed her convictions, even in the face of the complete obliteration of her home world, Alderaan. When rescue came, she grabbed a blaster and joined the fight, escaping back to the Rebel Alliance. But in the aftermath of the Rebellion’s harrowing victory and destruction of the first Death Star, the question remains – what is a princess without a world?
“How does she really cope with losing her entire world once the events around that loss have calmed down somewhat? Does she choose to be a princess of nothing – or does she set out to rebuild her heritage and civilization?”
– Mark Waid
Now, follow Leia’s journey in the days following the end of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope as she searches for answers…and for hope. Witness the beginnings of the journey that transforms a princess without a home into one of the greatest leaders in the fight for freedom across the galaxy! It all begins this March, as PRINCESS LEIA #1, the explosive first issue comes to comic shops and digital devices!
